My mistake on the floor tom; I misread "floor from."
But: "guys like Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.....were playing more modal stuff than the chord changes of early bebop and playing it a little harder and louder." (And the Coltrane quartet played hard bop?)
I don't understand that, and I don't understand the part about bebop being a style that came form the streets, and poverty, and raw emotion.
